The Maritim Shockshell were a species of shockshells indigenous to the Dass-Clarke Temperate Sea and Wind Polar Sea on the planet of Sagan IV. They emerged during the Yannickian Period.

Background informationEdit

When the shockshell initially expanded after replacing its ancestor, the biln, it had expanded back into the Ichthys Swamp. While an offshoot once existed in the seas in times after the shockshell's appearance, that species has since died off. Over time, however, the shockshells in the Ichthys Marsh expanded outwards into the open sea again, and have evolved into the maritime shockshell.

Like the sea shockshells before them, maritime shockshells have adapted to surviving in saltwater. They have strengthened their calcium shell to better protect them — both from predators and from possible likelihood of storms coming in and damaging them. They use electrical charges brought on by electroplaques to attract food particles to eat and can now better pull these particles in thanks to elongated flagella.

Because of the increased likelihood of predators coming in and eating their eggs or young before they are mature, the maritime shockshells now spawn up to a thousand eggs into the water each spring.
